My honest suggestions to you are: 1. Drink plenty of warm water 2. Use povidone iodine throat spray or gargles for a week or ten days, to reduce the inflammation and bad breath. 3. If you have any problems related to the acid reflux, it has to be treated with proton pump inhibitors. 4. Consult your dentist for a complete evaluation. 5. Avoid chilled food and beverages/smoking/coffee/alcohol if any.

Bad Breath - How Homeopathy Can Treat It?

Bad breath is a dental problem which could also emanate due to poor digestion. It can also be experienced as a side effect of other ailments as well as medications. Smoking and bad diet may lead to this and it usually becomes a matter of low self-esteem as time goes by. Homeopathy is one of the most natural forms of medication, treatment and wellness when it comes to such problems that affect the lifestyle of the patient. These medicines usually combine very small doses of naturally found elements so as to cure an ailment or condition. Yet, it is important to remember that one must get a prescription for these medicines from a professional medical practitioner and check with the Dentist too.

Read on to know more about the types of homeopathic remedies available for bad breath.

  1. Merc Sol: If your bad breath problem also comes with symptoms like a moist mouth or constant dribbling, then this medicine may be prescribed. This usually happens when the salivary glands become too active and produce more moisture than what the mouth can handle on a normal basis.
  2. Pulsatilla: This medicine is usually prescribed if the patient complains of a dry mouth along with a bad breath problem. This helps in treating related symptoms like the lack of proper hydration due to the lack of thirst. Not drinking enough water can also lead to the problem of dry mouth and thereafter, a bad odour from the mouth.
  3. Kreosote: This medicine is considered as a very effective medication for bad breath, especially if the bad breath takes place due to caries in the teeth. This medicine can also help patients who are experiencing bleeding gums along with caries and bad breath.
  4. Hepar Sulphur and Carbo Veg: The combination of these two medicines is known as one of the best when it comes to treating bad breath. The other symptoms that call for the prescription of these medicines include Gingivitis or gum infection related problems and symptoms. When there is bleeding and pus in the gums due to the infection, then this medicine is usually prescribed. Excessive salivation is also another symptom that is treated by this medicine combination. Hepar Sulphur can be used if there is a throat-related infection or ailment that can lead to the problem of bad breath.
  5. Carbolic Acid: A homeopathic doctor will usually prescribe this medicine if the problem of bad breath is accompanied by intense and perpetual pain in the abdomen. The patient will also complain of gas in stomach due to the ailment that affects the stomach in such cases. This gives rise to many symptoms including bad breath. Loss of appetite is also treated by this medicine.

I have a tonsil stone. A whitish substance come from my mouth which smells very bad .what should I do to get rid of it.

BDS (Implantologist)
Alternative Medicine Specialist, Bangalore
Hi our mouth and tonsil are coated with mucus lining. Along with this lining, we have no. Of pits &crypts which vary from person to person. It's in these pits & crypts that bits of food, bacteria, and other debris get stuck. The debris calcifies or hardens turning into tonsil stone. This debris and bacteria release sulfur compound which is usually the main reason for the foul smell. Rinsing your mouth every time you eat with mouthwash (alcohol-free) will help to freshen your breath & kill the majority of bacteria in the mouth. Brushing properly with proper brushing technique will sweep any food bits, bacteria, and other debris. Change your toothbrush every 2-3 months. Although it's not performed as often as it was, sometimes a tonsillectomy or surgical removal of tonsils is the best way to prevent tonsil stones. Think of your tonsils like the appendix of your mouth. They help your immune system, but if they're causing you trouble, you can live without them. Have an apple, carrot, cucumber, water nuts in your daily diet. Avoid dairy products, sugar, processed food. Dairy products can cause a buildup of white coating on your tongue & buildup in tonsils & throat that leads to bad breath.
